Why you’re here

We’ve talked, or you’ve heard me talk. Now you want to get in touch or find my stuff. That’s the main purpose of this page.

What do I want? At the moment I want you to book me to give my talk on applying the principles of magic to user experience design. That would be great. Check out my trailer:

If we met, you may have promised to send me articles, book recommendations or recipes. Please do. I meant it when I said I was interested. Or I may have promised you something; so please remind me.

Projects

In addition to the wild excitement of working at inUse, I currently have three side projects that I am working on:

  1. I am in the process of completing a very short book of techniques for how to be more creative. The book will be self-published in 2019.

  2. I will then finish my tiny book on design critique, basically expanding my Medium article and sharing the thinking behind the 50 questions in design critique card deck. The book will be published in 2020.

  3. I am also putting together a short show mixing magic, psychology and philosophy – basically all the things that I love. This will premiere in October at a conference (more on this soon).

Some things that I’ve written

Essays on design critique, UX design, and creativity over at Medium.

Some of my academic papers.

 

A couple of courses that I teach

Behavioural design (note that the  link takes you to a description of the course in  Swedish. I could conceivably give the course in English, but only if I really like you).

Design critique (note that the  link takes you to a description of the course in  Swedish. I could conceivably give the course in English, even if I don’t like you).

 

Design critique cards

I created a set of cards with over 50 questions designed to probe and critique a piece of interactive design. Read about the cards here, download the pdf, or buy a pack of physical cards.

 

Fun and weird
